Surprisingly well preserved and a step back in time. A wonderful find amidst the chaos of Manila! A walled city within Manila, the center of education and religion. An economic zone.

…..in 80s wartime Beirut.. Except that Beirut was cleaner, safer, with less annoying vendors/scams. Churches were ok though.

Highly recommended to go here if you wondered what to do in Manila. The art works in the cathedrals are enchanting & building architectures are very impressive.

A great and sincere history of the past is a marvellous way to learn of the original Manila. I have been in Manila many times in earlier years, but never knew of this pla.ce. Definite camera territory

I advice everyone to take a trip of Intramuros when in Manila - that is a complete different perspective, a different world, which has been surprisingly preserved and allowed to coexist within the big bustling megacity. Dont do the guided tours - just walk or...More

A nice place to visit. Old and historical place in Manila. There are many things to see and do such as shop, restaurants, cafes and visit the cathedrals and historic sites.

Even though the vast majority of the area and buildings are not original and have in fact been rebuilt the current Intramuros is a huge part of the country's Spanish history. Especially the old Spanish fort,churches,prisons and ammo dump.Gives a good insight into colonial history...More

Hi, Intramuros would be a fairly easy walk from the cruise ship docks. It might take about 30 minutes. The easiest route might be to walk to the main cathedral and fort area. They are on the edge of the Intramuros.
